Beautiful project! Love the bright colors. I can easily see you doing this in miniature too to create Christmas tree ornaments.

These are fabulous! They'll be so pretty hanging on a tree or the wall.

These color combos really showcase the birds beautifully!

Wow....these are wonderful. The colors are so pretty. Would make for alot of great uses. Love them so much. Great idea's.

I just tweeted. First time I've done that.
Love the use of the birds. We use Cardinals in this area a lot so I can see changing the colors and adding the cardinals.

Sweet! I love the big brush stampers, the colors are so rich and they are so versatile.

This is a cool project, and the give away isn't too shabby either! I love the mixed media products, and CI makes great papers.

Wow - how cool.

They are so vibrant, and the depth is amazing!

The backgrounds came out great, and I love the birds. I am always making bird cards!

so so beautiful. I love the purple.

Such an unusual technique and so effective. the birds look fabulous and the colors are amazing. What a reat job.

Great idea! I have a twig branch tree that I decorate for all holidays(my grandsons love it) and these would be a cute way of decorating it! I would have to do it with "inchies" I think, but it would be a fun project!

Those would look great on my walls. I have quite a few bird decorations...I like your technique--very artsy, but not fartsy :)

Beautiful holiday decor. I like the outlining with the silver pen.

Love the muted background patterns on these, really eye-catching with the bird die cuts over them.

Lovely project!love your technique!

Lovely cards, the birds
are so pretty.

love the look of these, a beautiful set to hang on the wall together. wonderful color choices, and matching the ribbons and bling on each pulls them all together nicely. thank you for sharing.

Beautiful ornaments...love your color choices!
